Sustainable buildings

During the development of the Humanities Campus, many aspects of sustainability are combined. For example:

  • Having a sustainable building process by using environmentally friendly and sustainable materials, as well as reusing building materials as much as possible;
  • Wherever possible: placing solar panels and green roofs on the buildings;
  • Water-saving taps;
  • Waste sorting;
  • Saving energy by using LED lamps;
  • Having a sustainable energy supply through thermal storage.

The possibilities regarding sustainability are different for every building: a historical monument presents different opportunities than a renovation project or a new construction. More information on the sustainable measures that are applied to every building on the campus can be found at the subproject pages. For example, see 'How to make a monument more sustainable' under the subproject Arsenaal.
